Besides blowing the lid off Lost Planet: Colonies, Capcom has recently also showed off two new Xbox Live Arcade titles at the Digital Day press event in California. Scheduled to hit the Xbox Live Arcade service this Summer are 1942: Joint Strike, the re-imagining of the classic top-down arcade shooter, and Plunder, a real-time multiplayer strategy game.
1942: Joint Strike is a remake of the arcade vertical shooter released all the way back in 1984, retaining the art, sound, and gameplay of the heralded World War II-themed 194x series. Though it plays like its old brethren, the 1942 remake is powered by a fully 3D engine.
- Classic arcade style gameplay with 3D HD graphics
- New Joint Strike attacks, weapons, and power ups
- 2 player local or online missions
- Top Down Vertical Shooter
Plunder, on the other hand, is an original game that tasks the player with commanding a pirate ship to destroy the opposition and seize control of towns for the benefit of the playerâ€™s pirate faction. Players will be able to one-up their enemies by upgrading and customizing their pirate ships.
- Single player and multiplayer real-time action strategy from Certain Affinity, lead by Max Hoberman, designer of Halo 2 and 3’s multiplayer game
- Raid villages, sink merchants, seize towns, steal gold, upgrade your pirate ship and use your guns and your wits to send your foes to the briny deep
- Master twenty-five unique multiplayer maps or create your own and share them with your friends
- Up to four players on one console, up to eight players over LAN or the Internet
- Tons of customizable options [including a map creation system] that allow you to tune the game to meet your taste
